Top Week 7 RB Matchups to Target

Let me preface this section by saying I am not going to point out how favorable the matchups are for Frank Gore, Leonard Fournette, Dalvin Cook… hopefully can identify chalk spots and decide where to use them.

Tevin Coleman

How many fantasy owners that have had shares of Coleman, Breida, Mostert, or Wilson have said ‘if only he could get a little more volume in Shanahan’s offense’. Well, it looks like Coleman owners are having their wishes granted.

With 21 touches last week and 16 carries the week before, Coleman is clearly the lead back in this offense. While he only converted that usage into 15 DraftKings PPG, we think Coleman pops against the Redskins in week 7.

Washington is 20th in the NFL in YPC allowed, and 27th in rushing YPG allowed. Combine that with the fact that the 49ers are 2nd in the NFL with 180 rushing YPG and 8 rushing TD’s, and I think we could see a monster day from Coleman in Week 7!

Todd Gurley

We preached it all offseason, Gurley’s schedule against the run is absolutely brutal this season… He has had only one truly plus matchup to date, which came against Cleveland. Clearly this is a matchup that he should be able to put up some decent numbers. The Falcons give up roughly 22 DraftKings PPG to running backs this season, and this game has one of the highest totals of the week, so chances are good that Gurley finds the end zone here.

Top WR/CB Matchups to Target

Michael Gallup vs Rasul Douglas

The struggles continue for Rasul Douglas and this Philly secondary. Unfortunately for Douglas the prognosis is no better here in week 7. Douglas is the 5th worst corner in the NFL, allowing 2.17 Y/RC, while Gallup is third amongst all WR’s with 2.8 Y/RR.

Gallup – 18.7 Fantasy PPG
Eagles – 40 PPG to WR’s

T.Y. Hilton vs Johnathan Joseph

We continue to pick on old man Joseph on the left hand side of that Houston secondary. Joseph’s giving up a career high 1.93 y/rc, and like Douglas, faces a WR averaging over 2 yards per route ran.

Hilton Y/RR – 2.09
Joseph Y/RC – 1.93

DJ Chark vs Dre Kirkpatrick

Dre Kirkpatrick is having a nightmare season, one that is likely to continue here in week 7. Chark has been somewhat matchup dependent this season, but when the matchup is right he has flashed enormous (39 point) upside.

Chark – 140.5 QBR
Kirkpatrick 127 QBR Allowed

Brandin Cooks vs Isaiah Oliver

Given the target share, and just how feast-or-famine Cooks has been this season, Kupp seems like the obvious, perhaps even chalk, play here. That being said, it’s Cooks that has the best matchup with Isaiah Oliver, who has allowed a 77% completion rate this year.

Cooks 15 YPR
Oliver – 2.55 Y/RC
